    Re: What Did You Pass Up Today? Winter/Spring 2012

    Passed on some 2008 Thomas H Handy. I had a hard time parting with the $86.00 they wanted for it.

    Drive back there, put on your dust mask, open your wallet and pull $24 bucks or so out. Come home and drink.

    Re: What Did You Pass Up Today? Winter/Spring 2012

    Passed on some Pappy 20,23 and Handy. Higher than normally what I pay, and getting it home in the luggage would be tougher.

    But the one I really choked on was the baby Saz at $69.99. I about flipped when I say that price. Way out of range from what I've ever paid. And it's not like other store in the store was over priced either, but this one was just wild.

    Sounds like they looked up the wrong one and used the Saz 18 price. On the other hand, I got two bottles of Saz 18 last year for $29 each. When I asked about it they said that was the listed price. I should have bought them all because when I went back a couple of days later they were priced at $59 each.

    Love to hear stories like this. Kinda reminds me of Penthouse Forum in my youth.

    I wanted to walk out and not give them my business, but I've been having trouble finding Weller 12 anywhere else in the area.

    Passed up a bottle of I W Harper 15 yr and another bottle of I W Harper in a fancy wooden box. Uncertain of what version that it is. It was slightly shorter than the bottle of the 15year next to it. $90 for either, wasn't sure either was worth it.

    As far as I know. Not many stores carry it but the ones that do seem to have a steady supply.
